Take my commands,
For they are nothing
To you, at the bedside
Where your toes glisten from the water,
And your breasts gleam from the oils,
While your eyes let loose the gazes
Down upon your hands.
Take nothing from me.
But, I will take you
With all your flesh, and all your secrets
Buried among unguarded peace.
Let the stars fall
From your universe,
Because, I want to capture the sun
And hang it upon my brow.
And the sleep,
We’ve had to omit
Ourselves, in each other’s eyes.
